Collectors Brand
Oris survived the quartz crisis with simple but rugged watches, and used in-house movements a long time, among them such interesting items like this:
The design allows direct sub- or sweep second with the same plate and bridges. Just the positions of 2nd and 4th wheel are exchanged. The variant with sweep second therefore gets an intermediate wheel to couple the center pinion with the minute wheel at the sub-second position.
Additional advantage: In the center only one wheel (2nd or 4th) overlaps the barrel, allowing a moderate height for a pin-lever movement.
     Even today some models have exclusive attachments to volume-produced movements, and all this together makes Oris a subject for collecting, although the watches are not actually outstanding.
